"In his career as a soloist, Colin Stetson hasn’t redefined the saxophone so much as he has reinvented the saxophonist." Pitchfork
Saxophonist Colin Stetson was born and raised in Ann Arbor in Michigan. He spent a decade in San Francisco and Brooklyn honing his formidable talents as a horn player, before eventually settling in Montreal in 2007.
Over the years he has worked extensively, live and in studio, with a wide range of bands and musicians including Tom Waits, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, TV On The Radio, Feist, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, Bill Laswell, Evan Parker, The Chemical Brothers, Animal Collective, Hamid Drake, LCD Soundsystem, The National, Angelique Kidjo, Fink, and David Gilmore.
Meanwhile he has developed an utterly unique voice as a soloist, principally on saxophones and clarinets, his intense technical prowess matched by his exhilarating and emotionally gripping skills as a songwriter.
Stetson’s astounding physical engagement with his instruments (chiefly bass and alto saxophones) produces emotionally rich and polyphonic compositions that transcend expectations of what solo horn playing can sound like. Stemming from that approach and aesthetic, he has been contributing regularly to the world of film, TV, and game scoring over the past decade with such titles as Hereditary (2018), The First (2018), Red Dead Redemption 2 (2018), Color Out of Space (2019), Barkskins (2020), Mayday (2021), Among The Stars (2021), Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022), Uzumaki (2022), and The Menu (2022).
"wondrously strange" The Quietus
Brooklyn-based composer and musician Faten Kanaan creates music that is mysterious, smudgy and deeply melodic. Her live performances highlight her use of the piano keyboard as an extension of the self.
From the repetitive structures of modern minimalism and early music/baroque influences, to more languid textural ebbs and tides, there's a warmth in Faten's use of synthesizers that gives her work a curiously timeless feel.
